Oooooo. He's cute!

I saw these... but my photo is no where near this quality. I love you photos.

Your title caught my attention...
we were on the road the other day and my husband said... that guy is crazy he is running around like a stipe-ed ass ape. I laughed so hard I almose pee'd my pants.

sheila,
tell your husband that i have never received a more accurate compliment of the way i live. i am like a teenager withwheels and money to this day. my wife is a very special lady to allow me the freedom to hang off oregon cliffs to get a photo. sometimes i get myself into trouble and it's completely idiotic.
all the best to you both.

This is a wonderful shot! You caught him with a choice morsel ready to go in his mouth. I love it!

kathy,
i was not in full view. i was in a car. they are actually very curious critters so in time it kept coming out and getting closer. i was using a 400mm lens so that also helps greatly.
i probably shot 60-80 files during a long wait. most are this close. i just liked this one for the paws.

I love all your photos, such diversity, but this little guy is my favorite. We live in Missouri and have a bunch of these fellas on our property. I'm a wildlife fan so I so enjoy them. I'm such a novice at photography, but I'm looking for a simple camera that I can use without being overwhelmed with lenses and detailed adjustments. Thanks for coming by my blog. I can relate to your family life with your daughter, our youngest has had hemochromotosis which undiagnosed really threw us.
